Telectronics ScanMan Full Identity Scanner is pan-spectrum scanning system employs ultrasound, thermographics, magnetic resonance, and optical sensors to fully analyze, digitize, and categorize all identifying physical features for total identity parameters. The ScanMan can assess as well as recognize the features of whatever person it is turned upon, allowing for positive identification.

This unit has three main functions: first, it can be programmed to recognize a certain person's features, and when used in this way it will be able to recognize the person even if they have undergone body sculpting (33% chance). Second, it can be used to scan a subject and then compare collected information with a database (either chipped for a small number of suspects, or connected to a microcomp or mainframe for access to full institutional records). However, it is only effective if the subject already has a ScanMan record to be accessed. The ScanMan can be operated with its own separate scanning devices, or as an analysis package for detection equipment already in place (such as Arasaka's Scanway Gates). It is currently in use with several police departments, the CIA, Interpol, and many powerful corporations.[1]
